From doing a quick Google search, all other ANZ planes in this livery incorporate white engines too. The Wi-Fi antenna is also in white and looks a bit out of place on the fuse too imo.Jump to post
Just a quick update, the Beluga XL seems to be on it's 24th flight to date and is currently doing touch and go's at Toulouse airport. Looking on FR history some flights are over 2 hours long and others are as short as 20 minutes.
Anyone have a more detailed update of the program?
Now that's a livery! Go large or go home!
The autothrottle “flaw” isn’t a flaw; it’s a lack of understanding in how they work. There shouldn’t be any surprise when in a FLC descent , the throttle position is IDLE, until capturing a vertical path or altitude. GF Correct, flaw is the wrong word to use. My apologies. And trying to edit on a m...Jump to post
Don't quote me on this, but I'm sure there was a few comments on AVH that say this is a known condition, and Boeing is looking into it. It also stated a quick fix to reset the equipment. Again, in one of the comments in AVH. Allow me disbelieve that. The systems that failed are installed on that mo...Jump to post
@lightsaber, it's incredible to think that CFM are producing 14 engines a week! That's a amazing achievement in my eyes, alas, I don't know how long it takes to build an engine. Any insight on that timescale? As for Airbus slowing down - that's not an option and I don't see it happening what so ever...Jump to post
The question is, how did this happen? The pilots did well, but this is an incredible maintenance failure. How? While the pilots earned there pay, such close calls should not happen.

Gotta kind of agree that these comparisons are, not pointless, but trivial. You have 2 great aircraft, that not only have different design markets, but weigh differently. Then they have different thrust classes?? The A350 can fly further, with more payload, and passengers too? Now as other people ha...Jump to post
STC is doing WAY too much talking. He’s almost become the Elon Musk of airlines.

Tim Clark started the most unlikely business in the regio...Jump to post

Someone in the 737 production thread mentioned issues with late delivery / part shortages of APU's as well.Jump to post

Has there been any coverage on the actual crash site? Did Rich put it into a nose dive and end his life etc etc? Did he a really run out of fuel before he crashed?
There's nothing on AVH about the aftermath.

The last ceo produced will be in 2019 sometime. From which FAL I’m not sure.

Any word on Jetstar Australia? Plan is August 2018 on the line, still going ahead?
Scoots First Neo cn8441 is underway.

Well done Airbus! That was a great air show for them. Now let's get these built.Jump to post

The order of the show right there. Only to secure A330 neo production which is ramping down at present.

I think they both took delivery the same day? So far I've seen 6 ACF'S for easyJet. They seem to be pushing them through quite quick for now. I don't think that's correct, in fact you seem to be completely wrong about that: It's not used on the Airbus prototypes or the aircraft delivered to LH, VX, ...Jump to post
Surely ATC would of notified the crew they had smoke coming from the R/H main gear which would then cause the crew to check instruments etc. I would also imagine that anti skid warning from that axle tooJump to post

Why are you teasing us about a teaser video to which you do not link?

The first Beluga XL is scheduled to leave the paint shop on the 26th of June. That why they where washing it last week. https://farm2.static.flickr.com/1729/28911142148_735b8e4ded_b.jpg https://hiveminer.com/Tags/beluga%2Cxl They were checking for water leaks hahaJump to post

Now the neo wings are very different from the ceo wings.Jump to post
There is no difference in the wings. All wings that roll off the line since circa 2013 are capable of being fitted with sharklets even if the wingtip fences have been fitted iirc.Jump to post
There is loads of ceo's still on order. We're manufacturing around 4 every week roughly at present. In fact, very recently there was a set of wings manufactured which had the old wingtip fences fitted instead of sharklets.Jump to post
